London-based IT company Netstar moves to new offices to provide more flexibility for employees
London-based technology consulting and IT support firm Netstar has moved to new offices in Farringdon to provide employees with flexible working options.
May 27, 2021 / / – 2020 has been an extraordinary year for businesses, with many remote operations during extended periods of Covid-19 lockdowns and restrictions. Working remotely posed unique challenges for companies and their employees, but there were also advantages to taking advantage of it. Some employees thrived from home, and many were eager to continue working from home after the restrictions began to ease.
The shift to remote working came out of necessity for businesses when the Covid-19 epidemic hit, but many employers are keen to take advantage of the benefits and move forward. Netstar, an award-winning IT consulting and support company, adapts to life after lockdown by recognizing the benefits of flexibility and the preferences expressed by employees.
While searching for new premises, Managing Director Mit Patel said: âIt was crucial for us to find a space that could accommodate our growing team of IT professionals. We listened to their preferences and agreed that we needed a workspace that made flexible working possible in the long term. Employees can now book offices in our new modern offices using an app. This allows them to enter the office as much as they want, while ensuring that we can still implement social distancing and keep our team safe.
Over the next few weeks, all Netstar employees will have the opportunity to work alongside their colleagues in the new Farringdon office and the team are also looking forward to welcoming customers once it is safe.
Mr Patel made the decision to move to new offices after gathering information and feedback from employees and assessing the impact of the pandemic and the changes it inevitably brought to the future of office work.
A survey conducted by LinkedIn for World Mental Health Day in October suggested opinions on remote working were mixed. While 49% said working from home was positive for mental health, 40% of participants said it negatively impacted their well-being. Of those who expressed negative comments, only 40% wanted to return to the office full time. Another study by Personio found that a quarter of employees would quit if they had to return to an office permanently.
Mr. Patel and the Netstar team take on the challenge of finding a healthy balance and offering employees flexible working options by combining elements of office and remote working and providing the team with additional support as they go. that employees adjust to a ânew normalâ. Netstar has also produced a guide to help other businesses and organizations re-welcome their employees. More information is available at https://www.netstar.co.uk/.
